if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.

today I learned that if you want to slash someone’s tires, don’t slash all four; only slash three because if you slash all four their insurance will pay for it but if you only slash three they have to pay for it all out of pocket

today on satan makes a blog post

I think I learned this through this post years ago

Note to self: if someone ever slashes three of my tires, slash the fourth one myself.

Thirteen Year Old Pitching Phenomenon Mo’ne Davis Makes The Baseball Hall Of Fame

Look out world! That sound you hear is Mo’ne Davis’ 70mph fastball shattering the glass ceiling above a lot of little girls’ baseball caps. 

Mo’ne Davis, the thirteen-year-old girl whose stellar pitching performance in last month’s Little League World Series earned her the cover of Sports Illustrated, is about to be immortalized in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Mo’ne will visit the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, tomorrow, with her teammates from both the Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons, and her longtime travel team, the Anderson Monarchs. Seventy-nine-year-old Mamie “Peanut” Johnson, one of three women to play in the Negro Leagues, and who Mo’ne lists as her “favorite old-school player” on the Monarch’s website, also plans to attend. 

Mo’ne will present Hall of Fame officials with the Taney Dragons jersey that she wore when she became the first girl to pitch a complete game shutout in the Little League World Series.  After the presentation, Mo’ne and her teammates will play an exhibition game at Doubleday Field in nearby Stamford.

Thanks to Mo’ne, “You throw like a girl” is no longer an insult.
